arenas across the middle east. and this yearslong bet by the islamic republic of iran on these groups has paid off, because now their regional allies have become the most influential players in their respective arenas today. the result is that today it is the islamic republic of iran and its ideas of participatory islamist governance and an independent foreign policy that has real influence, real power in countries across the middle east from egypt to baa rape that were -- bahrain that were once clearly in america's camp. in strategic terms, the islamic republic of iran has been and is using through its narrative not its drones, not its tanks, through its narrative they are using the political awakening of middle eastern publics to alter the very nature of power politics in the middle east. as we describe in our book "downing to tehran," this has been an effective foreign policy and national security strategy for the islamic republic of iran, one that is exactly and repeatedly underappreciated in the united states. and at this point i'm going to hand it over to flipt to continue -- flynt

officers should have guns, and she said her training kicked in. i bet you guys looked long and hard for a story like that. but the one you saw doesn't do any damage to the pro-gun argument, bank ecause it was a police officer, they don't argue that a police officer should not be armed. the second one is the actual situation that you get when you have lots and lots of individuals running around trying to play vigilante. >> it is interesting, there were others e-mailing us, saying we were afraid to tell that story, because they point to us as a sign that people being armed is a good idea, kind of to address the theories. you actually say there is more common ground and the thing that is the president could do that the nra would actually give thumbs up to t. what do you see? >> the truth is i'm much less interested in the politics than the policies that can come from it. the president has taken flak for not doing enough on gun control. but there are things like enforcement. 77,000 people have lied on criminal background checks on whether they could legally obtain a gun. they have been
in. i bet you guys looked long and hard for a story like that butt one you found was actually one that i don't think does any damage to the pro-gun control argument because it was a police officer. i don't think anyone's arguing police officers, perhaps even off duty police officers shouldn't be armed. the second one seems to be much more like the actual situation you get when you have lots and lots of individuals running around trying to play vigilante. >> we picked that story because there are all these conspiracy theorists e-mailing us saying we were afraid to tell that story because they point to that story as a sign or indication of people being armed is a good idea. you say there's more common ground and things that the president could do by executive order that the nra would give a thumbs up to. what do you see? >> i'm much more interested less in the politics of tomorrow than the policies and common ground that can come from it. the president has taken a lot of flak from people like mayor bloomberg for not doing enough on gun control in his administration. there are things
to me in a very terrific terrific tisk. i bet you will never by the the hand that feeds you i would tailor my remarks. >> bill: he insulted you. in the past you would have hit him with a chair but you didn't. >> there what were no chairs. >> bill: you absorbed the insult. tables are turned big al gore making a lot of money from oil sheikhs who. they provided the money that went in his possibility and he doesn't like big oil if you see him in the lobby again. >> i have no doubt acute sense of what is hypocritical and not hypocritical from my own personal experience. for him to take that big money, where al jazeera paid more than the price. >> bill: way more. >> big bonus from the oil rich sheikh dom of gutter. he knows where that money came from. he knows it is in conflict with his basic personal. >> bill: he took the money anyway. >> he took the money and run. >> bill: is he hypocrite. >> accuse me coming for fox news. i'm the same person i was at nbc. >> bill: hit him with the chair. i want to see that. >> he gave me that smirk. you know that al gore smirk? >> bill: i don't know th
analysis i think what cory is doing is pretty smart. he is placing a bet that frank is not going to run again and he is trying to position himself at the head of the line for anybody else who might aspire to replace frank. and so this is not a game for wall flowers or folks who are -- at the end of the day it is a pretty darwinian game. >> listen to this. this is what booker said in that wnbc interview. >> as frustrated as i was with him for taking time to evolve, as he said, it was a glorious thing to see the first president of the united states stand up and affirm equality. >> talking about same sex marriage and marriage equality. should republicans reconsider their stance on issues such as same sex marriage? >> i don't think so. earlier today colin powell talked about the dark vein of intolerance. that plays both ways when you have folks on the left who will take a defense of traditional marriage as being an act of bigotry. i think we need to grow up and play this out in the public arena and in the legislate chb bodies of the country. >> the president's comments made before the elect
bills as the president said, we're not a dead-bet country. i'm glad they finally saw the light. we need to pay our bills and move forward. there is a stronghold of 75 republican tea party members who quite frankly do listen to the tea party in many ways, and hopefully this is a signal that they too need to understand that this should not be an issue. it should not be held honestly. hostage. we should raise the debt ceiling. that's an automatic. we should move forward and talk about how we create jobs. by creating jobs we reduce the deficit. >> jennifer: i'm take taking it as an encouraging sign that the tea party can be moved by public voices. if they can be moved on the debt ceiling of all things, maybe they could be moved on guns. you wrote in the "huffington post," advocating reducing defense spending so you can spend more money and invest in the united states. the question is in the negotiations in congress over the spending do you see that happening? >> we've got to make it happen. again, it's got to be the voice of the american people that will make it happen. people don't realize
